While the restaurant is quite small, (book in advance) this is more than made up for by the quality of the service - Denis serves you and ensures you're topped up on drinks. Would definitely recommend! The duck dish was absolutely delicious, as was the avocado and prawn starter. Finish with the crepe suzette!

In the last 2 years this restaurant has gone from strength to strength. It thoroughly deserves its top TA status (after discounting fish bars etc .) in the very competitive Norwich listings. I enjoyed a filet cooked with 22 Caribbean spices that was absolutely exquisite. The owner Denis is attentive and his rapport with the chef is evident .The starters... More

Had an amazing meal here with my family at the weekend. It's a little slice of the Caribbean in the heart of Norwich. We all had something different so we could try each other's food, and every meal was a winner!! We shall be going back again and again.

My partner and I dined in Chez Denis one evening after a browse on trip advisor for something a little different and we were not let down. The food was good, fresh, authentic home cooking and the Owner was very friendly and more than happy to have a conversation about the menu options. Amazing ginger cake and creme anglaise!

We had a brief overnight stop at a local hotel/spa for our anniversary but wanted to eat out in Norwich itself...we chose Chez Denis as it seemed so different to anything we'd ever been to before...Location is little strange, but feels more of a well kept secret...it was smaller than I expected from the website which made it look quite...

This was our first visit to Chez Denis. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the monkfish and can't fault how it was cooked. The creme brulee was the best I've ever had. Will definitely visit again. It's a very small, intimate restaurant with a lively atmosphere. The owner is very charming.. One of the best... More
